100th Anniversary Capital Campaign

Campaign Goal: Raise $200,000 in capital funds by WUMC's 100th anniversary in November 2024

Anticipated Capital Campaign Giving To Date

WHAT IS A CAPITAL CAMPAIGN?

A capital campaign is concentrated effort by the church to raise funds that will be used to support the repair, upkeep, and expansion of the church facilities over the next 5-10 years.

The last capital campaign was held in 2014 and raised over $97,000 in honor of our 90th anniversary.

WHY GIVE?

Supporting this capital campaign directly supports the ministry that happens within our walls and through the lives of our congregation. This campaign expands our capacity to impact lives because warm, welcoming spaces and meaningful experiences can transform lives when people of all ages experience God and grow in faith.

Any gift, no matter what amount, will have an impact on people through the church's ministries and work in our community.
